Re: How to decompile the Source code for modding

Both codes are essentially the same. However Relanat's code will behave different when a file named SET is also available. It will probably fail unless that file can be decoded. Windows treats everything between the ( ) in the FOR command as a file specification. If the file is not there it is ignor...

Re: Easiest way to make money early in the game

Not my kind of game, way to easy with this mod. And the reward is only a few credits? Boring, but I can imagine it to be a little bit of fun for a very short while. Like playing the Renegade mod, and when finally leaving citadel space instead of continuing to the core, going the other direction, to ...

Re: Changing ships at shipyards

I agree that there currently is no incentive to change ships in SOTP. The experienced player has no trouble upgrading the available ships to battleship status. So, suggestion, why not impose for example a limit on the possibility to put any kind of reactor on any available ship. It kind of does not ...

Re: [Meta] why are there so many mods on the forums but not Xelerus?

I do not use many mods, mostly because Xelerus looks old and offers a lot of incompatible mods. It perhaps once was a good solution, but it is definitely showing it's age. Perhaps it is an idea to make a modding section on the Multiverse? The official mods are already there, Perhaps their makers can...

Re: convinced my Mules are vanishing 1.8.2

I remember losing a mule in a similar way. Since then I stick close to them if they have valuable cargo. When they have no cargo or only low value I don't care. It is very usual for random encounters to turn up and target one of my mules. Especially if the stargate is on the edge of a system and I t...

I'm not sure why you're having issues with missiles and the Ion9. It should be incapable of hitting your own shots unless there's a bug somewhere.
I'll test it and if it destroys my missiles I'll file a bug in the ministry.

Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

I took the Ion9 all the way to heretic. Up until there it was mainly used against Luminous drones, very effective. Did not use it much in Heretic, in the beginning only for managing the pteravores together with my longreach. Did most of the missions in Heretic using my trustworthy TM7 and Heavy NAMI...

Re: [Discussion] Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

Actually, a PD device that deflects kinetic rounds is (in the real world) the only possibility to not let them hit you. If you put a laserbeam or other high energy beam on a piece of metal, rock or whatever heavy item that is coming at you with great speed, it will not stop that item or blow it to d...

What happens if the Antarctia gates while you are docked?

So, I just rescued the Antarctica from a bunch of Aquila's. Commander Helios is very happy, gives me the reward and then I start looting the wrecks of the Aquila's. Having done that, found an intact Heavy Nami, with lots of vulcan's so why not upgrade my launcher to that. Also some refuelling might ...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Inventories never restock This is not entirely true. If you buy the entire supply of a station's ammo or fuel and probably some other items, it will restock that ammo and fuel over time. This is only when you buy available ammo, not when you are selling. If you sell ammo to the station that it prev...

Re: Semesta I.G.C

CM1 blaster quite often does not hit the main target, especially if the target is small. What happens is that I shoot the target, projectile reaches target and explodes harming everyone around except for the main target. It is not uncommon for modders to create "inaccurate" weapons on purpose. And ...

Re: About NPCService

I think all ships should need to refuel. This would also make it possible to chase down ships by letting them run out of fuel. Considerations are in place of course. All ships belonging to a faction can only refuel at their faction's stations, or stations that are neutral to them. There needs to be ...

Re: One-Week Adventure

I voted for the Anarchists, simply because in the vanilla game they are just cannon fodder. Much like the Centauri warlords. And their backstory is vague.
